.NET 2.0 Generics — Any suggestions?

September 16, 2007

Beyond the typical Google parsing, anyone have a good reference book for .net 2.0 generics?  Looking for the full deal—from reasoning and usage of each type to extension and such using the interfaces.  Also, it needs to be at a level where you don’t need to be a full C# guru to get the pros/cons—something that a couple of .NET beginners could consume and appreciate.

Unfortunately, my amazon.com’ing hasn’t found such a book and I’m not sure where to start creating my own content for the few at the office who need it.

So, any suggestions out there?

    My favorite is “.NET 2.0 Generics” by Tod Golding. I own a copy and still pick it up from time-to-time and almost every time I learn something new. I will admit that when I first starting reading it I didn’t know too much about Generics but now I use them all the time and have even retro-fit existing applications to use them. This was by the time I got through with Chapter 6.

    Your team will be writing Generic DataAccess classes in a couple of months. 😉
